The Classic Cuban Photographs of Fashion
Size - 27.94cm x 35.56cm
Author: Alberto Korda, my father, best known for his photo “Guerrillero Heróico” the photo that made a man’s life a legend. this is not the only photo that made my father’s work epic. The beauty of Norka and her sceneries became the classic Cuban photographs in fashion of all time.  Original created in the years 1956-1960 Signed by the author, my father, Alberto Korda.
Brief Account: My father’s first shoots were of his girlfriends. Later he found himself motivated for photography and the satisfaction of meeting beautiful women. This passion made him well-known as the Casanova in the Havana streets. He opened Studios Korda in 1953 with his partner photographer, Luis Pierce. They worked mostly for fashion and advertisements until the victory of the Cuban Revolution, which didn’t need fashion at all. My father then became Fidel Castro’s personal photographer for almost a decade.
Museum Quality print in B&W. Perfect Condition.
Signed by the Author Paper Photographic Process.

Accompanied by a letter of authenticity and provenance from Dante Korda
